Haunted by my Past Mistake….Episode 20
“Good morning,” Ruth greeted Abigail as she stepped into her office.
“Morning, Ruth,” Abigail replied cheerfully.
Ruth noticed her boss was dressed in a casual wear- a jean and long sleeve shirt. Was this the Abigail she knew?
“Any updates?” Abigail asked absent-mindedly. She found herself thinking of James. Looking forward to having a great evening with him. He was different. Abigail had actually spent the night in his room, on his great bed while James slept in one of the guest rooms. He insisted she slept in his room. Called her parents to know she’d be sleeping over. The morning came, they had a wonderful breakfast prepared by James himself. She saw herself fitting into the family. She really longed to be there, a part of them. She was starting to love Chief Benjamin’s family. The clothes she actually wore to the office belonged to James’s mom. They had persuaded her to wear it and she had given in.
“Um… Yeah. The financial problems we’re passing through is almost over. Ruth gave a response to the previously asked question. The Benjamin’s decided to help us. Within two weeks, they’d be merging. You’ll be working directly under James Benjamin. The company’s CEO. There’s going to be a meeting this afternoon to discuss the other details. You have to be there.” Ruth concluded.
They finally saved us. They hadn’t married yet. Her father was right. It wasn’t all about the company, but the marriage. She hoped never to let him down. She’d be working directly under James? If she would be married to him, she’d resign and look for a job elsewhere. With James in her work place, she’d never concentrate. She’d now have a boss- for the first time.
“Thanks. About the meeting this afternoon, I won’t be around. I’ll call my Dad, he’ll handle it.” Abigail had many things on her mind.
“Miss,” Ruth called to her. “Did you just thank me?”
“I did?” She had. She’d learnt to thank people the hard way. “Oh, yeah. Its nothing.”
“Okay. J. Benjamin, isn’t he the James that was here yesterday? Said he was your fiance?”
Abigail glared at her. “How many people have you told?”
“Good. Keep your mouth shut. Not a word of this to anyone.”
Abigail smiled. “Have a nice day, Ruth.”
Abigail walked out of the building and was headed to the parking lot. Someone accidentally bumped into her.
“Watch it!” the woman screamed at Abigail.
“Excuse me? You are the one who’s supposed to watch your steps. You bumped into me!” Abigail yelled.
The woman eyed her. Her green eyes sternly glowering at her. She was dressed in a mini gown, it exposed some parts of her body. Her feet were covered with boots. Her dark hair flying as the wind caressed her face.
“You lack manners,” The lady muttered.
Abigail flushed with anger. She slapped the woman standing before her. “That’s to show you that I really do lack manners.”
The woman’s face turned red. She tried to slap Abigail. Abigail was fast, she caught her hand mid-air. “I am Abigail. No one crosses my path and gets away free.”
“So this is you?” the woman questioned. she tried attacking Abigail.
The security guards that had been observing the show caught the strange woman. Stopping her from attacking their boss. Two of them held her firmly, placing her hands to her back. She struggled, but couldn’t free herself.
Abigail smirked to herself, triumphantly. “Do any of you know this shit?”
The guards looked at each other and shook their heads.
“I don’t know her either. Listen to me you lady, I don’t know who you are neither do I care to. I want you to leave this premises and never come back if you don’t want to spend the rest of your reading life in jail. I’m sure its hell already. Looks like your lover stood you up.” She dug out her new cell phone from the purse she carried. She took a picture of this strange lady. “I don’t know why I’m doing this, but I have a feeling it’ll have a good result. Throw this prostitute out of my company!” Abigail finally ordered.
Who is this Lady?
